Video production isn’t cheap and buying stock film can take a big chunk out of your wallet. Thankfully, there are many free high-quality sources online where you can download stock videos.
We’ve compiled a few websites below that offer free videos for your next video project.
Videvo was founded on the basis of one simple mission: to provide high quality stock footage for free. Videos are uploaded both by the website owners and the community.
A majority of videos are licensed under “royalty free”, a non-credit license that allows you to use and modify the video in your projects. Always remember to check the licenses before you download and use videos.
Videezy hosts a solid collection of free-for-use footage, helpfully sorted by categories. The only catch: Standard (free) videos are only available for personal use and require attribution to Videezy.com.
Pexels Videos offers completely free videos. All videos are licensed under the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license. This means you can edit or change the videos and use them free for personal and even for commercial projects.
Pixabay Video is a vibrant community of creatives, sharing copyright videos. All contents are released under Creative Commons CC0, which makes them safe to use without asking for permission or giving credit to the artist – even for commercial purposes.
